Count the number of doors between the exits and your room
Open the exit doors and examine the staircase layout
Locate the nearest alarm pull station and fire extinguisher
Inspect Your Room
Study the layout of your room
Determine how to turn off your air conditioner. In case of fire, this will prevent smoke from being pulled into your room.
Read Fire Emergency Information provided, including instructions for reporting a fire, and know the evacuation route for your floor.
Always keep your room key handy near your bed.
If You Detect a Fire
Try to remain calm
Immediately activate the nearest fire alarm. Fire alarms are located in the hallways
To keep fire from spreading, close the doors against fire if possible.
Dial “9-911” for emergency and tell the operator:
• The nature of the problem
• Where the trouble is located
• How serious it is
• Your name and where you are located
Take your key before exiting
Follow the exit signs
Do NOT use elevators
On Hearing the Fire Alarm
Take your room key
Look through the door viewer to determine if it is safe to vacate your room. Feel the door with the back of your hand. If it is hot, do not open it. If it is cool, open it slowly, looking out for smoke. Be ready to close the door quickly if there are flames or smoke outside, and remain in your room.
If fire and smoke conditions are reasonable, exit keeping a wet cloth over your nose and mouth.
While moving to the nearest exit, keep close to the walls. If there is smoke, or it is dark, remain calm, stay as low as possible to the floor (the air is fresher at the floor level) and move towards the exit, counting the doors.
Exit with caution, test the exit door for heat before opening it and look for smoke and flames. If the stairwell is safe, exit to the ground level. If you are stopped by heavy smoke, go to a smoke free hallway and look for a smoke free exit.
DO NOT USE THE ELEVATOR If Your Exit is Blocked
If the exit is unsafe, return to your room if possible—it is the safest place for you
Shut off the air conditioner and fans to seal up vents
Stuff wet towels, sheets or blankets under the door and in the cracks around the door to seal the room from smoke
Remove all the drapes from the windows
For extinguishing and wetting purposes, fill your bathtub with water.
Dial “9-911” for the emergency line and tell them your location
Wave a sheet at your window. Signal your presence to firefighters.
Tie a wet cloth over your nose and mouth for easier breathing
Throw water onto hot surfaces
Do not break windows unless absolutely necessary
